Did the Lough Dan-Kanturk-Scarr-Old Bridge circuit on Sunday in the howling gales and heavy rain and discovered that my goretex pants really need to be traded in for a new model. Despite the conditions, however, this is a fabulous circuit - about 13k and 560m of ascent. Ideally use two cars to prevent about a mile of road walk at the end. Leave one car at the layby near Old Bridge, leave the second in the layby about a mile further on just beyond the Scouts centre. Walk on to the end of Lough Dan and then just after the road swings sharply around to the left go through a style on the right and follow the marked path laid by the National Park which swings around the end of Lough Dan until it eventually comes out onto the open mountain. Navigation is pretty easy, there is a well-marked if occasionally very soggy track westwards across to Kanturk which then weaves through the various outcrops before it swings south and then a short steep stretch up to the top of Scarr. From Scarr, it's an easy descent off the eastern side of the mountain down a long ridge which eventually you brings back to Old Bridge and one of the cars.

One point of navigation for anybody doing this route in reverse - i.e. first Scarr and then Kanturk. After Kanturk and when you're heading eastwards towards Lough Dan, after about a 1.5k the track divides about 100 metres before a very distinctive pointy pyramid-shaped boulder. Take the left fork as this leads directly to the marked path the National Park has put down - complete with steps down the steepest stretch of the descent towards Lough Dan. I haven't taken the right fork which goes by the pyramid-shaped boulder, but it looks as if it leads directly towards some pretty heavy fenced-off forestry.
